This paper presents a dynamic system approach to the design
of multimodal interactive systems.We use an example where
we support human behavior in a browsing task, by adapting
the dynamics of navigation using speed-dependent automatic
zooming (SDAZ), allowing the user to switch smoothly
among different modes of control. We show how the user’s
intention is coupled to the browsing technique via the dynamic
model, and how the sdaz method couples the document
structure to audio samples using a model-based sonification.
We demonstrate that this approach is well suited to mobile
and wearable applications, and audio feedback provides valuable
information, supporting intermittent interaction, i.e.
allowing movement-based interaction techniques to continue
while the user is simultaneously involved with real life
